We integrate a variety of evidence-based approaches to therapy in order to meet the needs of a diverse range of people. We understand that seeking therapy is a big step and that people often reach out to us during times of turmoil or uncertainty. We strive to create a comfortable and safe atmosphere in which we can work together to identify your treatment goals and take concrete steps towards changing your life.
We will work with you to understand your strengths and how you can harness those strengths towards making positive changes. We will also compassionately and collaboratively help you identify unhelpful patterns that might be interfering with your goals. As cognitive-behavioral therapists, we understand that all of us can engage in behaviors and have beliefs that might inhibit our growth or be counterproductive to the goals we set for ourselves. In therapy, by beginning to explore those patterns and understand the function they serve, we can work to identify new behaviors and thoughts that fulfill similar functions but are also in service of your goals.
We are dedicated to helping you navigate the complexities in this process of self-exploration and growth in an atmosphere that is safe and validating but is also encouraging and challenging. We know that people come to us seeking results and relief, and we believe that providing an appropriate balance of support and challenge fosters an ideal environment in which people can make positive changes in their lives as quickly as possible.
We are committed to providing tangible tools that can help you live a more effective and meaningful life. In our approach to treatment, the role of the CBT therapist expands beyond what is discussed in the room. We strive to provide each client with skills they can use in "real-world" situations to cope more effectively with challenges as they arise and to prevent "relapse" into old patterns. Our ultimate goal is to help you become your own therapist in order to continue to grow even after treatment has ended.
